Just a quick update on my M4A3(75)W. I got a base wash on her which took an evening. I will next be moving to adding stowage and more weathering. If you haven't seen the previous posts this is the Tamiya Front line M4A3.

Here's the link to the original WIP showing the unpainted and base coated tank.

you are too kind. I think i have a long way to go yet to come even close to the work of guys like Bob Letterman and Steve Zaloga but I will keep trying to improve. I am pretty happy with the results thus far though and I will try and get some more updates out soon.

Cheers,
David.

The time period for my 3rd armoured division M4A3 is Cologne, Germany March, 1945.

All the best and thanks for the kind comments.

Hi David, this is a very nice model indeed, I remember to be impressed about your effort over the old Tamiya kit from your previous construction post, now the colors ended even better!!!

David,

That's a really beautiful Sherman. One of the best I've seen. I love the paint job and the weathering so far. In fact, I think the current weathering is just right to my eyes, not overly done like some, but that's just me. Great job on the kit and great photography as well! What was your photo setup David? Edward

Great to hear you like it how it is turning out. Things are coming together for this project and I must with some tender loving care this older Tamiya kit can be made to look as good as a Tasca and DML Sherman.

Thanks for looking and posting your comments.

Dave.
